On December 7, a K-Pop industry insider shared that BlockBerry Creative is allegedly preparing for LOONA‘s comeback in January 2023.
The comeback will apparently happen on January 3 and only include ten of the eleven remaining members of LOONA.
This announcement comes only weeks after Chuu‘s recent removal from the group on November 25 due to an “abuse of power,” according to the label.
There’s no clear answer why the comeback will only include ten members. The report comes as a surprise to many because it was recently rumored that nine of the remaining members of LOONA had requested to terminate their exclusive contracts with BlockBerry Creative after Chuu’s removal from the group. However, the label later shared a statement saying that the rumors weren’t true.
LOONA’s last comeback was with the album Flip That, which came out on June 20, 2022.
Keep an eye out for updates on the situation involving LOONA’s future plans.
